Mr. Egg,

To be honest I usually just get them mixed in with the walleyes, and I don't really have a go to sauger spot in ther spring that is... But I do remember at time six years ago on opening weekend that we had a pass where it was sauger hand over fist and we named that spot "sauger city" but usually I just get them mixed in with eyes.
Anybody else?

Prescot has always been hit or miss sauger action when I go. I would say just below the 94 bridge on the wis side where it drops off to deep water is pretty saugable. Got lots there last fall.

Fished prescott last night.Never caught an eye they all were saugers.No real big ones but did bring 3 home from 15-16 inches.Biggest I got out of the croix was 22 inches last year on a shad rap.One of my buddies caught one that was a little bigger than that so they are there.Pool 4 has some pig saugers also but dont rule out the croix.
